Former East Coast Wrestling Association (ECWA) Unified Tag Team Champions Matt Saigon & Damian Dragon, known as FUSION DS, were recently featured in a music video, “Lucha Libre” by Italian rock band NUV.
Saigon and Dragon won the Tri-State Wrestling Alliance (TWA) Tag Team Titles from the Best Around, Bruce Maxwell and TJ Cannon, in January 2011 in Voorhees, NJ.
In May 2011, FUSION DS defeated Christopher Rockwell and Sam Shields, the Midnight Sensations, for the vacant ECWA Tag Team Tiles and also to unify both the TWA and ECWA Tag Team Championships to become the first ECWA/TWA Unified Tag Team Champions.
FUSION DS defended the championships throughout 2011 and were ranked the number 10 tag team in the world several weeks by Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) Magazine online at www.pwi-online.com. This marked the first time ever that any ECWA champion(s) had ever been ranked in the PWI overall top ten, which is usually reserved for WWE, TNA, NWA and international wrestlers.
FUSION DS’s title reign ended at the ECWA K-CUP Tag Team Tournament in Newark, DE in Nov 2011 when they were defeated by Asylum and Matt Burns, the Flatliners, in the quarter-final round. The Flatliners then lost the championship to the Matt & Bryan Logan in the semi-finals. The Midnight Sensations, old rivals of FUSION DS, then defeated the Logan Brothers in the finals for the Unified Tag Team Title and the K-CUP trophy.
Following their loss at the K-CUP, FUSION felt slighted by the fans who began to rally behind the Midnight Sensations and voted the Sensations ECWA Tag Team, Match and Moment of the Year in ECWA’s Year End Awards in on-line voting.
In January 2012, FUSION DS saved the Midnight Sensations after the Sensations defeated the Nigerian Nightmares in a very tough title defense and a brutal post match attack by the Nightmares. After chasing the Nightmares off with chairs, FUSION helped the Sensations back to their feet only to brutally attack them with a series a chair shots!!!
With the roles now reversed, and the Sensations now the favorite of the ECWA fans, FUSION DS has vowed their new attitude will lead them to become the first ever 2-time Unified ECWA Tag Team Champions. However, the defending champions, who bill themselves as time traveling, karate aliens from the Triton Moon sent from the future to save tag team wrestling, say different and promise to send FUSION DS away empty-handed.
The Midnight Sensations have 2 title defenses scheduled against FUSION DS, first at ECWA SPRING BATTLE!, Mar 3, 2012 in Newark, Delaware and then at the YMCA of Salem County, Mar 10, 2012 in Carney’s Point, NJ.
